Applying for Financial Aid
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. CFCC's FAFSA school code is 005320. CFCC will request additional information/documents at a later date if required.
You can apply for financial aid anytime after January 1. It is recommended that you submit your FAFSA prior to March 15 (you can use estimates of your income tax data if you haven't completed your taxes - just make sure the numbers aren't far off from the actual values). Although there is no specific deadline, the earlier you apply, the earlier we will be able to notify you of your financial aid eligibility.
At CFCC, summer session is treated as the "trailing" semester of the academic year, i.e., summer 2011 is the end of the 2010-11 academic year. You may be eligible for financial aid if you did not use your entire eligibility during the previous fall and spring semesters. To apply, submit the appropriate year's FAFSA, i.e., a 2011-12 FAFSA for consideration for summer 2012 funding.
The FAFSA is valid for one year only, so it is necessary to reapply each year.
